I went to a SoFar Sounds tonight. SoFar Sounds, in short, is live music in an intimate environment.
There was a moment during the event when the musician got all of the audience singing together, arms around one each other. The power of human connection combined with the music made for a magical moment.
The experience was so different from my daily activity and focus. It made me realize that this activity, SoFar Sounds, is one of the purest forms of life that I'll ever experience in New York. There are no gadgets or technology being used and it isn't be streamed. I'm certainly not using my phone during the experience. The event was held in a room with nothing but a few blankets and some old posters. The emphasis was on pure music. In a world focus on so much extra this did none of that.
